In fact, it does remind me I forgot about summit at sea and the members that came on the boat with us, and you know there is an amazing story. There's this like very, Very well-known Entrepreneur investor who has flown around the world and has his own jet and has been on plenty of you know cruise ships and. Ocean liners and whatever else he's ever wanted took a steam auto greatest story, I love pets, and this guy goes into the steam room and it was the you know nineteen twenty year olds from Air Sea who he met in the steam room and ended up hanging out for like three hours. Actually I don't believe the whole time of the steam room as a long steam. Amazing. He told me the story was like, Oh, I have to tell you. This is my favorite experience. I've ever had summit. Because I go into around this corner into this spa, I go inside and I meet these kids who are in their first ever steam on their first ever cruise after taking their first flight outside of California who are like on this ship and you know here I am like. The water wasn't hot enough on my t this morning and woe is me you know what I mean and the perspective that he got. He's like what's incredible about? This is just the beauty of like interacting with people that just don't share your background or your experiences that like their perspective on all the things that you think are absolute troops are different and informed in their own way I remember standing the lounge and this guy who will come Mr K. I. Think if I remember correctly, he had come straight from the steam and was in his robe still at so. Mr K. comes. Up to me and says, I just had the most amazing steam of my life and just like pins against the wall and tells me this story. It was just such. So beautiful because you know that these young air sea members lives are changing with this experience, they're feeling human in part of society and part of the elite in part of power part of genius conversations. Right. But on the flip side Mr, k. was only one of multiple people they came up to me on that trip and said I. Think I just had the deepest conversation of my life and I think these people I just talked to have done more work on themselves. Ninety five of people in society and I think I've learned more about myself today because of this conversation that I've had. So just a beautiful win win and kinship. That happens when you put people together from those various worlds is beautiful. Art of the Hustle we'll be right back after this short break. Mourn and said this away.

I mean there's so many critical issues in our society today and just what you said about hope really resonates with me. You know because I feel like we're in a pretty hopeless time where people can't really see opportunities to get out of their situations you know often and Often, seeking on this podcast and just in my life is sort of those little nuggets of wisdom that empowered the people that road that road before you in a sense you know. So in for you like when you think about the next issues that you want to apply this work to you personally, where else are you excited to lean into right now? We are a developing film with Ben Affleck Directing. and Martin Scorsese in Harry. Belafonte. Producing. called. King, Leopold's ghost and I am excited about this. So much of what we focused on his domestic, but this is really a global story. Of King Leopold of Belgium who decided that it would be cute to have a his own African continent and went to the Congo and made it his own and pretended to be a missionary. But ultimately was a slave owner and enslaved over a million people to make money off of rubber cut people's arms off murdered people. That's not what the movies about the movie is actually about the first ever human rights campaign a led by Black Congolese Africans white I'm sorry white Europeans Black Europeans White Americans. Black. Americans all teaming up together to expose these atrocities really showed a world's first human rights campaign. It's funny that even after George Floyd I was reading about all of the King Leopold statues in Belgium being toppled and thrown into the river. But really excited to kind of tackle those issues of colonialism, which obviously are part of our country's history as well. Tackling issues of racial justice and bringing people together. Really interested. In in De stigmatizing mental health issues working on issues around creating equity and equality for women and girls looking at our immigration system, I find the rhetoric around immigration right now absolutely disgusting when I do believe that we look at our immigration rhetoric ten years from now it is going to be the next gay marriage. We're going to be in shock that we ever did this to human beings I see it as. I see it what we did around marriage equality, as well as our history with slavery Those are the issues that are really, Kinda Kinda Front, and center for me right now, we also we are in negotiations on a big huge major music film kind of in the vein of Bohemian rhapsody in rocket man and walk the line the deals with issues of racial justice that I'm really excited about. But I can't talk about yet were in negotiations on a really exciting environmental and sustainability film that is really kind of human centered in human based, which I think is exciting were looking at a project that is all kinds of Latino and let nex representation that's awesome. We have a small independent film that is a beautiful mother son immigration.

"Democracy now. Democracy now dot org. The quarantine report I'm Amy Goodman with nermeen shape. The black lives matter uprising in the United States has catalyzed reckoning about racism and colonialism across the globe, including Belgium where growing movement is demanding Belgium address systemic racism make amends for its brutal colonial legacy protests have rocked Belgium as demonstrators demand the removal of statues of King, Leopold the second who became king and eighteen, sixty five and ruled what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo as his own personal colony until one thousand, nine, hundred eight in a reign of terror that killed up to ten million people. In the eighteen eighties leopold to seize land in Central Africa, seventy six times the size of Belgium he ran the region for his own profit, commanding private army that included Congolese. And draining the land of its resources, including rubber and ivory under his command, millions of Congolese people were enslaved and separated from their families. His troops were ordered to collect the hands of victims and to shoot those who resisted slave labor. He also imported. Congolese people for a human zoo in Belgium. Leopold to was forced to give up. Congo is private fiefdom in one, thousand, nine, hundred eight, but remained under Belgian rule until nineteen, sixty one Congo one. Minutes now sixty years later, Belgium is hardly reckoned with. It's bloody past statues of Leopold, too can be seen in cities across Belgium in Brussels last month. Activists climbed a statue of Leopold the second, and chanted murderer while waving the flag of the Democratic Republic of Congo meanwhile thirties in the city of gent removed separate statue of Leopold on Congo's Independence Day June thirtieth. The move came after protesters doused with red paint to symbolize the blood of murdered Congolese a leopold statue was also removed an Antwerp this reckoning led King Philippe of Belgium to issue an unprecedented statement expressing regret for Belgium's colonial rule in a letter to DRC President Felix USA Academy. The Belgian parliament has also agreed to form a new truth and Reconciliation Commission to address the legacy of its genocidal rule and Congo the soul comes amidst growing demand for reparations for more. We're joined by a descendant of King Leopold to WHO's joining the protesters and demanding a reckoning about his brutal legacy. Princess Miranda is the great grand niece of Belgium's leopold the second. She's the aunt of the current king. Philippe of Belgium, and the daughter of the former king leopold the third. She's joining us from London and Brussels were also joined by Jia. The Congolese Belgian activists and founder of Cafe Congo in Brussels welcome you both to democracy now. Jia. We. Let's begin with you. You are Congolese living in Belgium you run the Congo cafe. Can you talk about the legacy of Leopold the second and what it means so often? In now hearing the story of the king who considered Congo his personal fiefdom, we think of the cutting off of hands. Ten million people died under his rule. Explain this history or at least describe it to us. Yes I'm not a historian, but I'm a journalist Amick, belgacom journalists, and that lied to we to study the construction of the bedroom, national narratives and now served how systematically they reasonably division they. Wizar- of the Congo's contribution in the construction of the Belgium identity, that's why coming from starting from King Leopold to who was the king of Belgium, but also a builder, also the heads of the. tweet state of Congo he had duties and responsibilities, and that continue Taylor that colonial continue to you know after we had the Belgian Congo and then. Today with the systematic discrimination and I can confirm that under foods of this. Shared history between Belgium and Congo, but it is a it's a denial. HISTORY IS A. History Eastern. That's why you know starting from my point of view from experience. I think is really important. You know to testimony an also to anchor these observations and Easter Easter facts because we have our cars, we facts. We have evidence of this crimes of couldn't crimes under King Leopold to an under Belgian Congo. It's important to frame directly link directly to the demands of the new generation today that the colonial continuum. That's why now we arrived in a moment. It starts from King. Leopold to and you know the demands do negotiations to remove. These statues of King Leopold to ask the head of the free states, but you know if you keep on the. Reflection it's it goes further and we. We would like to work now on material in memorial repuation because it has an impact to the earth on the new generation on the after this generation, it means for example the ceiling Lhasa. Feeling. Las- The discrimination, the sickening systematic nickel phobia. That's why we are really aware, and we really in that kind of momentum with the internationally. You know we've on occasions. But Princess as I want to ask you about the Belgian government's response a so far. To this history between a Belgium and colonial Belgium and Congo In recent years, the Belgian government has issued apologies for some aspects of its relationship to Congo. Including the separation of mixed race children from their Congolese mothers as well as for Belgium's role in the assassination of Congo's I post colonial Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba. Even, though many including the UN have called for Belgium to apologize for its brutal rule, King Philippe, and in the letter that we mentioned earlier, and he sent to the DRC president, he only expressed the deepest regret a for what Belgium had done acts of violence and cruelty as he said. Now many have said that that letter quite apart from not containing an apology is almost entirely irrelevant, because the king a does not represent the viewpoint of the Belgian government since he's not formerly a member. And and then the question of why it is that Belgium has apologized for certain aspects of its rule. But not for its overall brutality in the region to could you talk about that? And whether you think these protests might produce apology. Now. Where you're absolutely right, I mean there was there was also always some mixed message. There was some apologies for some things, but there were other people at a minister, saying no, we should not apologize. We cannot agrees history. So I think honesty dispersed the que- the king, saying that he expressed deep regrets unjustly doesn't go far out, but it's a first step. It's quite. He's still in our country. That's chief upstate. Waco Kanye's acknowledges the problem of the US on this lead. We have to go much further, and the parliament has voted for Commission of Truth and reconciliation, and I really hope that this will. will expose the past..

"They keep the statue up because it immunizes them, and it is the nation of Belgium, right, it allows Belgian to understand themselves as not being part of a state whose modern incarnation was founded on oppression, and that has implications for the way that you think about. About contemporary politics on issues like reparations for colonialism or slavery, or even how you should think about, let's say immigration from former colonies in the context Belgium right. If you feel the Oh these people debt, because of the way that you treated them in the past collectively, not you individually, then, maybe there's a much stronger argument for giving them rights to immigrate then there might be otherwise or reasons to give them preference in immigration. These these kind of interplay between our normative understandings civil. We ought to do today and what we've done in the past are very complicated, but the point is that these fights that seem symbolic actually have real stakes, not just people walking around and how they see themselves I don't mean to deny that that's important, but in terms of big deal, policy conversations and ways that you understand your nation in contemporary politics. I'll just give a concrete example about Belgium of which shocking that I somehow found a way to make this conversation about soccer so every time everything. So, if you follow soccer, you'll know this. Belgium's best players guy named in his art, but argued with their second best player in their main goalscorers. A guy named Mellow Kaku by his name. You probably know that he is of Congolese or heritage. His parents are from the Congo. He grew up in Antwerp. That Leopold Statue. The Gen mentioned was it was hard initially for a lot of Belgians and I know this for to accept him on the team. The team is now way more integrated than it used to be and Lukaku success. was that he he's keep scoring, but also the team came third in the last World Cup and I remember talking to some Belgians at the time when I was there in two thousand. Thousand ten before the World Cup, but basically being like you know this teams getting good, and it's in part because of this of Lukaku and others, and it was like yeah, thank goodness for Leopold like I'd heard people say that they were basically making the case. That is a good deal that finally some players from elsewhere could join the small country of Belgium and make the team better, and that is regaling. Yeah the second of process that Dear God, yeah! And I remember I met her that bars and stuff, and this is also in Belgium is an insanely fractured country are not going to go into the history, but. Having the myth of Leopold as like a binding agent for for that country, and the fact that that's going away is i. mean good I'm not against it, but it will actually cause a problem for the myth of that country. It is allowed Flanders and Wallonia to the Dutch, the French speaking part that are always at each other's throats and trying to separate to somehow stick together. There's a reason why this myth has persisted for so long beyond that the right once again mentioned family and whatnot, but like the. And the soccer thing and outlast point is like. An. I think this takes us into the second part of the conversation. Is that Europe shockingly white continent and the tons of soccer teams. The I've been at the forefront of being symbols of countries is in that on that continents progress France, perhaps being the main example where tons of players whose you know, parents come from Francophone. Africa moved to France and some members joined the French national team, and then they've what they've won two cups since that integration started even though you have people like the Lapenne family that leads the populist right where his. His discharge, saying they do not represent France and so this is actually like a part of the conversation that France and Belgium and a bunch of other countries are starting to lead, which is that you can integrate? You can move Europe story forward and that this is that in of self those teams is a reflection of the new societies in those countries, and those societies in those countries are going after those old myths, and that's kind of what the corporate we're talking about. So that's A. that's a perfect place for us to take a break. When we come back, we're going to talk about these issues of national cohesiveness and national identity and historical memory, and the way that they play into contemporary politics and even sometimes relations between states. Welcome, back worldly listeners we have been talking about the role of historical memory in international politics, particularly as it relates to race, slavery and colonialism in the wake of the George Floyd protests, and how that's created fights over symbolism that aren't aren't really fights over symbolism so much as they are fights over how countries understand themselves, and how people understand their own countries. In this half, we WANNA talk about different models that countries have developed around the world for doing this kind of historical reckoning and and. And how successful they are, and how unsuccessful they are, and how they play into the ways that country see their relations with other states, and even their role on the global stage, so the example that that always comes up in these conversations non avoidable. One I think is Germany. His Germany's south understanding had to be rebuilt after World War Two after it was responsible for all of it for the war for the Holocaust the greatest loss of life in one instance in human history. And this was such a shattering event for the German people that the new, especially the West. German state eventually the unified German state had to come up with some some new self understanding way of seeing itself talking about itself, the took into account, the horrific acts that it had just collectively participated in so Germany has built up this very open and and clear acknowledgement of its role especially in the Holocaust. It's talked about their public displays that. Don't commemorate Nazi general so much as identify sites of atrocities and helped Germans understand and reconcile themselves to their own history, it served as a kind of reverse buying agent were Germans understand themselves as part of a shared state and shared history, not out of national pride in the sense of we are awesome, but a sense of we need to do better than what we've done in the past. We need to be a good country because of what we have done I have personal experience with us. As as listeners, longtime listeners might know..

Yes, and that's GonNa Change. How some people vote And we like the the the window. We'll talk about this in our interview a little later, but the window of debate on what is appropriate for for us to have in terms of police has shifted massively over the last nine days in a way that I, would have thought impossible ten days eleven, yeah. I I mean people we've talked about this. Everybody's been talking about it, you know. A few weeks ago. Yeah I wanted! Police reform I thought. Most cops are pretty bad, but you'd be hard. Pressed to get me saying all cops are bastards, not true anymore, absolutely not true and that and and even more so. I don't know anybody. Else. Who wouldn't be willing to say that I actually do? I know people, but for the most part I'm really heartened by the shift I've seen just across the board from people in my circles. You know centrists that. are staunchly. Yeah I also. Mentioned America a lot, but it's. It's not just America doing this I mean even that's what the Bristol thing was. Showing. The French writing on are.

I really think that all the status are leaving there. The last hours in that's incredible to experience in my lifetime. And that statue in Antwerp was in fact living its final hours it was taken down today by authorities and brought to a local museum. The World Health Organization has a recommendation for Brazil.

Michael Fox has more from Brazil when political scientists Luciana Santana went to check Brazil's latest official government statistics on the spread of Corona virus last Friday. The site was down.

They locked us down on the basis that a symptomatic people could spread corona virus, and so you couldn't just quarantine. The sick people had to quarantine everybody, so they had to Tang the global economy. And ruin their lives and put tens of millions of people out of work, and make everybody broke and close all the restaurants and close all the shops, because as symptomatic people could be spreaders of the covid nineteen. and then yesterday Maria Van Kurkova. who is the the haunt chet when it comes to the corona virus, so we're not talking about that communist goon from Ethiopia who heads the organization and is China's guy there that. Ghastly Dr. Ted Ross fellow Beijing Bulb. We're talking about one of the actual experts there. A WHO in fact is America? I believe Maria van Kerckhove Dutch name, but I think she's a US citizen. And, she said that the is asymmetric spirit. Corona virus is very rare. There's very little evidence that anybody. A symptomatic has ever given this thing to anybody else. In other words. We Tang the global economy for nothing, and we destroyed people's lives. Fa nothing for these last three months now she's issued a clarification. Saying that there have been some misunderstandings. And she was relying on two or three studies, and that she regrets using the phrase of very rare and she now says that some models could show as much as forty percent of transmission. so the lockdown on again because no one knows nothing, this is being the the biggest failure of public health expertise in Saas the WHO behaved appallingly, but the CDC the Centers for Disease Control, which is American behaved rather well giving the SARS epidemic damage. They both destroyed their brands completely during this thing, she was also saying that clarifying a distinction, she made between truly a symptomatic people and people who might be pre symptomatic. How'd you know your pre symptomatic I mean. Son Things are sutton in the sense that I'm technically alive right now, but I'm pre dead. But. How do you know your pre symptomatic? no-one knows anything. She announced that a symptomatic people couldn't didn't generally transmit the disease yesterday. She's walking back today. This organization is a joke and trump is right to call it a joke. If you WANNA know I, said at the top of the show top of the hour that the one thing it turns out the one thing that clears up cove in nineteen, eliminates a global pandemic. Is Race riots and I don't just mean in the United States because these things are gone all over the planet as said they taken down king. Leopold statue in Antwerp in Belgium that they took down. The mall tore down a statue. In Bristol England and tossed it into the river Avon, these things going on all over the planet, and mysteriously turns out the wherever you are on the planet. The one thing that Claes up. covid nineteen. You'll be feeling right as rain. You've been on under the weather that a bit of coffee a bit bit wheezy. never race right? You'll feel great, and as the city of Dallas is just declared. If you go out and riot you'll be at greater risk of Covid nineteen, but because you you entitled to the Federally. Subsidized covert test. It's all rubbish. The same experts who tell us that we had to I. It's unsafe to go to a hairdresser. It's unsafe to go to a nail salon now. Tell us it's perfectly safe to go and down a police station in Minneapolis, the same public health. As Rush noted on Friday Sarah, Isaac, Newton. The fellow who? Developed the three laws of motion? The apple fell on his head. Some Isaac Newton. Coming up for auction is his proposed treatment for the plague. This is not covid nineteen. It's the old school black death. He, said won't kiss. The black death is towed vomit lozenges. He's got a two page recipe for it I. You need towed? And you have to suspend the towed by its legs. This is the recipe spot on the rush. Limbaugh show. It's a new regular feature, so we're doing. It, today, you suspend a toad bites legs in chimney free days until it vomits earth with various insects in it. You have to catch the vomit on a dish of yellow wax. When the tow dies, you grind the body into powder. Mix it with the vomit, and then make it into lozenges, and this will drive away the contagion and draw out the poison. This is an Isis Newton. He's a great Guy Law of gravity, and all the rest of it and he's come up with this recipe of toad vomit lozenges. as a way to treat the black deal. He did this in sixteen, sixty seven. His notes are now coming up at auction at Sotheby's in Portsmouth in England and the bidding is currently at sixty five thousand dollars, and I don't know I. I'm to the best of my knowledge. I've never had a toad vomit lozenge. But right now I would bet on that rather than any of the advice. Coming out of the World Health Organization or the CDC. No one knows nothing. It's quite extraordinary three months into this thing. Oh! It's on surface his own. No, it's not on surfaces. You don't need to wear a mask. ooh, it's a crime now. If you go out without a mosque, oh, don't worry. Symptomatic people the the ones who were the reason. We all had to be locked up for the last three months now we found that we finally found out after Fremont's of you being a in house. Arrest that in fact, a cinematic people don't translate Oh.
